THE FOSSIL STUDY ROCK &
THE LIVING FOSSIL TREES
The Rock a Resources Center for all K-12 to College Level Learning
Hopefully by the Fall of 2018 The Rock will be made part of Northeastern State University studies for teachers. This will give the teacher experience in the outdoor classroom setting. How to use all the resources in setting up an outdoor classroom.
We are working with the area schools to have The Rock an extension of the class room. A place where students can hunt minerals and fossils. Then will have a study sheet to incorporate Math, Science and English aligned with the state testing program. This sight can be used from the simplest math to combinatoric, hyperbolic geometry and alebraic topolopgy. The project will be up dated to meet STEM and STEAM requirement for the students.
The first monarchs arrive at their winter home in Mexico each fall by the first of November. Two events are taking place in Mexico when the monarchs appear. One is a seasonal event and the other a cultural event and people connect the arrival of the monarchs with these events:
if you’d like to experience for yourself what it’s like to stand among millions of gentle butterflies, join a small-group tour of the butterfly sanctuaries in Mexico this winter. This rare habitat is set aside as the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to protect and conserve this extraordinary migration phenomenon, which you’ll get to witness up close on intimate adventures.
Like autumn leaves, monarch butterflies cluster by the hundreds of thousands on the branches of oyamel trees—heavy enough to weigh them down!
